Very probably, the answer to your question is “yes.” But provisional species names are one thing, and messing with combinations at lower ranks is another. The spores rubescens var. alba are rather distinctive. I don’t know yet, but it is possible that it should be described at species rank and not as a variety. Making multiple changes just creates a mess in the literature. The name rubescens var. alba is valid and it applies ONLY to the eastern North American entity (no matter what you see in European literature to the contrary). I think it is best to stick with the existing name since I don’t know of anyone with the full knowledge to make a well-considered change in the name. [The above contains OPINIONS.]
Wouldn’t this be closer to A. amerirubescens nom. prov. than it is to A. rubescens?
